What is it?
Industrial Athletic Jerk blocks create a solid base at different heights, in order for an athlete to position a barbell to key heights to assist in Olympic or strength lifts. These blocks are stackable and constructed from a high quality 18mm thick plywood. Some of the best features include CNC machined parts and strategically aligned inserts for a great stacking fit. All top plates are also double walled for integrity and strength.
We've used tech screws every 150mm to give you an internally braced block for complete strength and rigidity. We have opted for a solid ply timber top instead of a rubber layer used by others. When using jerk blocks for fast and technical movements, weights can be propelled in unintended directions. Control is essential, therefore a dead blow surface is preferred. Adding rubber to the surface can cause a very much undesired bouncing effect of the weights and bar.
What’s its best use?
The Olympic lift movements of clean & jerk, and the snatch are considered the most all-round movements for strength, power, co-ordination and mobility. Widely renowned since the early days of weightlifting and strength training as the ultimate test of a person’s ability to move heavy weights, explosively, and with control.
Industrial Athletic Jerk Blocks allow an athlete to position a loaded barbell at a variety of positions in order to maximise your potential at every stage of a lift. The ability to isolate the movement, or begin and end at set key positions, will ultimately reward you with a more complete lift. After all – ‘The sum of all parts is greater than the whole’
